Bulldogs Pull Away from Pioneers With Second Half Surge

Issue Date: December 3, 2021

Area Girls Basketball

The Peshtigo Bulldogs survived an early 3-point barrage from Sevastopol and kept the Pioneers at an arm's length for the rest of their 58-45 win.

Sevastopol led 15-10 early, with four 3-pointers, two by Libby?Ash and two by Naomi Rikkola, doing most of the damage.

"This early in the year, sometimes you want them to take those threes out there, but they made them, so we had to make some adjustments, especially at halftime," Peshtigo coach Bruce Parkovich said. "Give them credit. They would drive and kick it out, and those girls made a number of threes to stay in the game."

The lead wouldn't last long, however, as Peshtigo went on an 8-0 run on three pointers by Jaci Tonn and Brooklyn Phillips, and a bucket from Sydney Lund.

After one quick Sevastopol basket, Peshtigo scored eight more consecutive points. The lead stood at 33-26 when the halftime whistle blew.

The closest the game would get in the second half was five points, 39-34. Peshtigo called a timeout with 12:15 to play, and went on to score 10 straight points over the next six minutes, running a stall offense to slow the game down and tire out its opponents.

It worked as intended. Over the final 12 minutes, Sevastopol scored just 11 points, while Peshtigo controlled the tempo of the game and pulled away, with late leads of as high as 18 points.

"We got them tired, then I think a number of their outside shots didn't fall in the second half like they did in the first half. I think part of it was because they were a little more tired than they were in the first half," Parkovich said.

Sydney Lund finished the game with 22 points to lead all scorers. Eight of her points came off of 11 free throws.

"Sydney just works extremely hard, and it pays dividends because she'll take the ball to the basket and she can make free throws, too. That was good," Parkovich said. "She did get bumped around a little bit and I didn't know if she was going to get up a couple times, but that's the way she plays. Give her credit; she hung in there and contributed a lot."

Akira Smalls scored 14, also getting to the line 11 times, making five. As the team's main point guard, she's also asked to facilitate the offense rather than scoring for herself.

"At times, she's hot and sometimes being a point guard, we need her just to pass the ball and get our offense going," Parkovich said.

Brooklyn Phillips had nine points in the game for the Bulldogs.

Sevastopol's top scorer was Naomi Rikkola with 16. Bailey Rikkola scored 10.



Cougars Hold Off

Marines For 52-45

Home Victory


Despite being outscored 31-18 in the second half of Monday night's non-conference matchup, the Coleman Cougars came away with a 52-45 home win over Marinette.

Coleman led 34-14 at the half, then held on for the win. It was a balanced scoring effort for Coleman, with nine players scoring in the game, and no one player attempting more than eight shots.

Desiree Nowak's 11 points led the team. She went 4-for-8 from the field, also leading the team with 15 rebounds.

Kiersten Jensen had 10 points on a 4-for-7 night, Aubrey Bintz scored nine on 2-for-6 shooting and Alyssa Hoida was 2-for-3 for seven points.

Lindsey Wingender led Marinette with 13 points. Hannah Chenier and Bryanna Torkko each chipped in seven.

for 41-29 Win

Suring's lead grew to 37-14 in the second half. Wausaukee made a bit of a push late on, but the final deficit of 12 would be as close as the Rangers would get to pulling back into the game.

The game was played at Wausaukee High School. The Rangers are now 1-3 on the season, while the Eagles are 3-1.
